Charles Richard Eggleston (Nov 1945 – May 6, 1968) was a photographer with UP International. In May 1968, a jeep carrying 5 journalists accidentally came across Viet Cong outside Saigon. Despite their attempts to dissuade the soldiers, 4 were shot and killed. Eggleston swore vengeance. It remains disputed whether he was participating in a firefight, or simply photographing it, when he was killed by a sniper. Most sources agree that he was at least carrying a rifle.
